What is a balanced diet?

Marconutrients:At each meal/snack if you consume a good balance of proteins, fats, and carbs, you will experience sustained energy. Some call this the metabolic test.Micronutrients:Getting the correct balance of vitamins and minerals into the body at the cellular level is much harder to do.
